- Hi Bill.
If you look really carefully at the parts produced, and compare them
prototype castings, the scale parts will be too lumpy.
You may also notice that the lettering "Baldwin Disc Wheel" on the
yellow image doesn't compare to that actually produced on either the
the green wax part or the brass part.
And "Forgive the surface texture, the digital camera is unforgiving!"
Isn't the point of the digital camera to give a true image of the
(lumpy and out of scale) surface texture in the first place?
